2010 SAQA Benefit Auction: PART 2 Begins Today

The first part of SAQA’s online auction is now closed.

Part 2 begins TODAY at 2:00 PM, with 96 fresh new quilts up for bid.  Included in Part 2 are quilts by SAQA-CT artists Gail Kotowski, Diane Wright, Ruth Anne Olson, Jane Driscoll and Barbara Corrigan.  (image: “Sonnenblumen” by Jane Driscoll)

Check them out on SAQA’s website: http://www.saqa.com/news.php?ID=1499

Last year's Benefit Auction raised $47,325. The funds raised through the Auction are critical to supporting SAQA's exhibitions, catalogs and outreach programs. 

Driscoll“How Can I Get One of These Beautiful Works of Fiber Art?”

You bid by filling out the online bid form (which is "live" now until the auction ends). You can bid on up to 7 pieces at a time. The first bid on each piece wins!  SAQA will then ship the artwork to the winning bidder by insured USPS Priority Mail.

If you missed the deadline to purchase a quilt from Part 1, there is still a chance for you to grab one.  Unsold pieces will be for sale at the SAQA Store through the end of October. If they are still unsold at that time, they will be returned to the artist.
